Well, 2016 is nearly over.
Now is the time of year where people look back at the year gone by and think about what they’d like to change about themselves. Maybe they want to lose weight, or join a gym. Perhaps they want to finally write that novel they’ve been thinking about for five years. Maybe they want a new car, or a kid, or look for a new job, or give up chocolate, or only eat smoked salmon on special occasions…
Now comes the flurry of New Year’s Resolutions.
And, in a way, what I’m about to announce could be seen as a sort of New Year’s Resolution – but I like to see it more as a marketing plan…
So, without further ado…
It is my very great pleasure to announce that Detective Sergeant Evelyn Giles will leap into the published world this year!
That’s right, after nearly three years of wrangling with her – and two years of writing her first novel – The Bluebell Informant will be available to read from April this year!
But there’s more.
I’ll be releasing it for free!
That’s right – free!
But wait, there is still more to come.
The release of The Bluebell Informant will mark the start of a (punishing) release schedule over the next twelve months. Following in the wake of The Bluebell Informant, I intend to release not only the next instalment in the Giles series, The Court of Obsessions, but also a collection of my short stories AND the first in my Patrick Conroy series, The Butcher of Barclay’s Hollow.
That’s right – four books of varying lengths will be released over the course of 2017.
I think it’s safe to say that 2017 is going to be a very tough, yet hopefully rewarding, year for me.
Want to be first to know when these books are being released?

In the meantime, I thought I’d leave you with something quite exciting – the cover art for
The Bluebell Informant.
I know I am…
